Service was overall okay. Server wasn’t fluent in asking us if we needed anything. Took away our wine glasses without asking if we needed another one.

Service and food are excellent. Waiters are attentive, friendly, but non-intrusive. Food choices are not innovative, but rather, classics executed well. My fish was incredibly fresh and well prepared. I have never been disappointed during my visits to Michel's. The views are incredible - a different aspect of Waikiki since the views is from the north. Te room and decor are tired and dated, but it's kind of kitschy humorous. I highly recommend the spot for a special occasion as it's quite expensive.

Excellent; until I knocked over a beautiful table lamp when leaving. Glass all over the place-but the staff were accommodating and we left without further incident.

口コミを見て初めて行きました。ロケーションもお料理も素晴らしかったですが、同じ時間帯に結婚式のお食事テーブルもあり大変うるさかったです。ハッピーなお気持ちは分かりますが、個室か何かでしていただきたい。私たちもお料理を楽しみに行ったのに残念でした。

since coming in the late 80s we were disappointed with the claim of its ‘elegant dining’ reputation. people were wearing shorts and Ts. Oysters were bitter almost foul tasting. Two of four entrees were covered in a ‘gravy’ that almost appeared to have been used to cover the taste of second-rate meat. one meal described as having ‘prawns’ had one.

妻の誕生日で伺いました。料理、雰囲気は最高でしたが、料理の提供がとても遅く、4品で3時間半かかりました。おそらくキッチンのせいだと思いますが、さすがに遅すぎと思いました。誕生日のデザートをサプライズで準備してましたが、そんなこともあり、ちゃんと要望が通っているのか不安しか感じない滞在でした。

ハワイ滞在最終日に伺いました。
素晴らしく景色と料理も美味しく頂きました。
金曜でしたので、ヒルトンの花火も小さくですが
見る事ができました。
担当してくれたスタッフさんが、お若い方でしょうが
イケメンで一生懸命対応してくれてより素敵な滞在になりました。

cost performanceが高い印象です。食事のレベルは高く、美味しいです。またワインも平均的な価格という印象ですし、種類も豊富です。アラカルトで何皿か頼みましたが、その際、量等について、給仕の方が相談にのってくれます。
ビスクを食べてみたかったので頼みましたが、とても美味しかったです。また最後の調理をテーブルでしてくれるパフォーマンスも良いです。その他の料理もとてもおいしかったです。そしてワインも給仕の方の推薦に任せましたが、料理にあってました。なお、コースの場合、ワインのペアリングも可能です。
マイナスの要素があるとすれば、ロケーションがワイキキからは離れていること、時間帯によっては窓際席は特別に予約しておかないと取れないことです。またお客さんの構成として日本人率が高いです。周囲から聞こえる声は日本語です。またメインの給仕の方以外はややぎこちない印象です。
マイナス要素は、それほど神経質になるまでもないことですので、総合的にとてもよいレストランだと思います。

We were there to celebrate our friends' wedding and we thoroughly enjoyed the time and the outstanding service! Selection of beverage and food, pace of the service were just perfect to enjoy the dinner. Please send a big thank you to the waiter (James if I am not wrong?) for his very accommodating and friendly service :) Definitely worth coming back and recommending to others. Thank you.

サービスはとても素晴らしいものでした。
お料理は少し口に合わないものもありましたが、美味しくいただきました。
スタッフにオススメされたお料理は、どれもハイプライスなものが多かったような気がします…
女性2人で行ったので、ボリュームが多い少ないなどの話があったらとてもよかったなと思いました。
店内は窓が開放されていたので、夜はけっこう冷えるので、女性は羽織りものがあった方が良いかと思います。

Thank you, Michel's, for helping us celebrate our mom's 92nd birthday! With an elegant and refined menu (brunch for us this time - where one makes selections to complete a four-course meal) served by the most thoughtful and attention-detailed staff, an edge-of-the-sand oceanfront view of pristine and uncluttered blue waters, and the soft graceful serenading of Hawaii's finest musicians, Michel's continues to provide generations of our family with a place to celebrate life, ohana, and tradition. Michel's No Ka `Oi!!

We had a late dinner at 8. Most people go to see the sunset during dinner so it was not very crowded. There was beautiful live guitar music, a gorgeous night view across the water and a slumbering seal on the beach right outside. The lobster bisque is incredible and a must have. Our entrees were excellent and the service was impeccable.

Austin was a great server and so were the other servers who assisted him. He was very attentive to our table and needs. I would give him 5 stars. Also, my battery in my car died and the valet person was willing to help us jump our car. He really went above and beyond his job to help us. 5 stars to that guy too!

This was my 3rd dining experience at Michel's in 1 month, 2 dinners and 1 Sunday brunch. So, it is not a coincidence that I conclude that the food here is just fair & lacks flavor. When you have to add salt to your main dish at a fine dining restaurant, something is not right. I don't think we'll be back for a while.

We had a great waiter (Jason). He made great suggestions, kept up the conversation even during the peak hour. The noise level couldn't been helped due to a large party table nearby. My other half enjoyed her lamb, lobster bisque and salad. The wine we selected went well with our dinner.

The atmosphere was magical and so relaxing. We got to sit right by the beach side so that was very special to me. The food was amazing even the appetizers. Overall 5/5 restaurant. Very classy and elegant.

Absolutely lovely evening from the moment we walked into the elegant and comforting space until we reluctantly left after a exquisite meal. Service was impeccable and tableside preparations added an exciting and unexpectedly fun bonus. Cocktails (deconstructed G and T) and Blue Hummingbird were delicious and original. View was spectacular. Wine list very interesting and complete. Recommend the lobster bisque, caesar salad, and Steak Diane. We had no room for dessert, unfortunately! Hope to go back!

Loved our server, James - 5 star service. Clearly a tourist destination where locals are not a priority. Call for any special requests, they will not read or acknowledge anything sent via open table. Very pricy restaurant to dine with children and infants at every nearby table. Food quality solid 7. Location very nice.

目の前で料理をしてもらえ、楽しい一時を楽しむことができました。ロブスタービスクが濃厚で美味しかったです。
ただ、ロブスタービスクはスープの量が多いので、日本人女性だとロブスタービスクとシーザーサラダでメインが来る前にお腹いっぱいになるかもしれません。

Fabulous oceanfront views at sunset. Although we sat few tables in we could still enjoy the view. Attentive server and perfectly prepared cioppino & lamb chops. Enjoyed a drink and seafood bounty to share. Wonderful way to spend our anniversary and recall earlier days when it really served French entrees.
